Who invaded who?
The opinion and comment of the Pieds Noir above makes me sick! He has to understand that it was France that invaded Algeria and the consequences that followed and not the other way around. You should not have invaded Algeria in the first place for you to cry now why you had to leave and be scattered everywhere. Are you not happy to be back to your native France? (motherland). You had to leave Algeria because you were a foreign invader who had his own country called France and you treated the Algerian natives as second class citizens in their own country. Muslims in France now do not treat French people as second class citizens, do they? The Islamists you talk about who killed 200 thousand of their own people, you gave them refuge in your own wonderful France.
Your France is more advanced than Algeria. Why do want want to come back to Algeria that kicked you out?

French Algerian War
Very good movie. I lived this war till 1962. Lots of memories. Lots of political errors from all parties. Facing so much bloody murders, we had to leave and be scattered everywhere.
Bloody wars have not stopped after we left.
Islamists have risen against their own people to take more than 200,000 innocent lives.
45 years years later, we are told that the "Pieds Noirs" are "welcome back home" to Algeria.
